Actually, just the opposite...the conservative pecking order is Conservative, Republican and then RINO....as represented by the Conservative, Moderate and Left wing of the republican party in that order....RINO's are far more aligned with moderate Republicans(Moderate Democrats too) than conservatives.

I have never claimed to be a conservative, although many of my political views are much more conservative than GTs..

There is a difference between parroting Rush Limbaugh and expressing a point of view. Alobar and I express our points of view from OUR perspective. GT, on the other hand, expresses OTHER PEOPLES points of view.

Quite frankly "RINO" does fit me, in a literal sense. I registered Republican many, many years ago, when the party was about fair government keeping their nose out of places where it doesn't belong... The party has changed. Gone are some of the great political minds of days past. They have been replaced by bible thumping, divisionist, whackadoodle hypocrites. Hell, when a guy like  John Boehner is the voice of reason for the party, you know the GOP has lost its way. Today I'm a Republican in name only because I refuse to associate myself in any way with the extremists calling themselves "Republicans" today.

I'm in favor of socialized medicine
I'm in favor of the legalization of marijuana
I believe that our entire welfare system needs a complete overhaul
I think that the corporate tax rate should be lowered and at the same time we get rid of all government subsidies and tax credits for corporations.
I think the capital gains tax should remain the same
I believe that the cap on social security income ($110,000) should be eliminated completely. (this move alone ensures the solvency of SS for generations)
I believe that America needs to quit being the worlds savior and we need to start investing in our own infrastructure and people.

Now while the first two points, on the surface, will be called "liberal", they are actually very conservative, fiscally speaking. I'd be happy to elaborate...
In the past this would have pained me to do this, but I can say with all sincerity, the San Francisco Forty-Niners were absolutely no fluke. They earned every bit of that two seed and deserve to host a playoff game. Absolutely one of the best in the NFL this season and were so because of a balanced, ball control focused offense, awesome special teams, and truly one of the best defenses ever. Harbaugh a shoe in for Coach of the Year. Congratulations to the Forty Niners and their fans. It has been a long time coming. -SC

This is exactly the type of hypocrisy that I am talking about...

The GOP sets up an anti-Obama messaging campaign, focusing on unemployment in the U.S.... probably a legit criticism  of Obama. Unemployment is still very high and new jobs are being created at a pretty slow rate.

The problem? The calls were outsourced to a call center IN THE PHILIPPINES...

Single payor socialized medicine has been PROVEN to be more cost effective than our current system (which is also a socialized system, just a really bad one) in every industrialized nation in the world. A single payor system would be a more effective method of delivering healthcare to a larger percentage of the population, which would in turn drastically reduce the amount we pay per capita almost instantly. That is fiscal conservatism.

On marijuana... good lord, where do I start. The government spends $7.7 billion annually on the enforcement of marijuana laws. If it were legalized and taxed like alcohol and tobacco, it would generate $6.2 billion. That's a net of nearly $15 billion. That is just the gain from letting the potheads, that are smoking anyway, do it legally. These figures do not include the cost of incarceration or the cost benefits of using commercially grown hemp for the purpose of textiles, paper, and essential oils. Again, fiscally conservative. Additionally, hemp has an extremely high cellulose content, which makes it prime for the production of ethanol. Hemp grows extremely fast, unlike the trees we currently harvest for wood pulp. It's commercial uses are really only limited by our imagination, and the fact of the matter is that people are gonna smoke pot, why fight it? Hell, our constitution was written on paper made of hemp... it's as American as sour mash whiskey, Smith and Wesson firearms, and Ford pick-ups...

One of the biggest lies coming out of the neocon wingnuts is that Obama's economic policies are attacking businesses. Somebody forgot to tell, well, businesses...

The Fortune 500 generated a total of $824.5 billion in earnings last year, up 16.4% over 2010. That beats the previous record of $785 billion, set in 2006 during a roaring economy. The 2011 profits are outsized based on two key historical metrics. They represent 7% of total sales, vs. an average of 5.14% over the 58-year history of the Fortune 500. Companies are also garnering exceptional returns on their capital. The 500 achieved a return-on-equity of 14.3%, far above the historical norm of 12%.

http://thinkprogress...fits/?mobile=nc

Now here is my question for my whackadoodle friends out there. With business booming and the corporate tax rates at 40 year lows... where are all these jobs you've been promising?

So it turns out we are both a bit right on this one.

The final draft of the constitution and DOI were written on parchment (dried sheepskin), however the drafts for both documents were written  on hemp paper, quite likely from Ben Franklin's hemp paper mill. He likely purchased his raw materials from either George Washington or Thomas Jefferson, both hemp farmers.

There is no denying the industrial significance of hemp in the textile industry. The word "canvass" is rooted from the word cannabis, which played an important role in colonial ship building. Hell, Rudolf Diesel designed his engine to run on hemp oil...

The point is that it is a legitimate crop and if legalized could revitalize the economy, especially here in California.

A true, free market conservative would take issue with the government making such an important cash crop illegal. But then again, you are far from a free market conservative and need the government to tell you what you can and can't manufacture products with. As far as recreational use, marijuana is far safer for human consumption than alcohol and tobacco, not to mention its proven medicinal value.

Basically, the criminalization of marijuana is criminal.

Well what do you know... look what that free spending socialist President has gone and done...

Deficit streak ends: Obama sees first monthly surplus
The Washington Times ^ | May 7, 2012 | Stephen Dinan

The federal government broke its record-long deficit streak in April, recording its first monthly surplus since the financial collapse at the end of the George W. Bush administration in 2008, according to preliminary figures Monday from the Congressional Budget Office. Boosted by better tax collections and slightly slower spending, the government notched a $58 billion surplus in April.

That's nearly a $100 billion turnaround from the previous year, when the government ran a $40 billion deficit in the same month. April marked the seventh month in fiscal year 2012, and through that point the deficit stood at $721 billion — substantially below the $870 billion figure recorded at the same point in 2011. The CBO's analysis said spending on defense, education, Medicaid and unemployment benefits have all fallen this year, while Social Security spending is up. The nonpartisan budget agency also said tax receipts are 6 percent higher than last year at this point

Isn't he cute, thinks the federal government can perform the same task for less money and more efficiency.

I wonder if SC knows(as I predicted) his beloved CBO just DOUBLED President Obama's BS cost estimates on Obamacare.

I wonder if SC knows that the Obama Administration has had to issue some 2000+ waivers to companies that can't afford all those cost savings that SC claims they will benefit from.

I wonder if SC knows that Obamacare is so flawed that the entire state of Nevada was given a waiver.

I wonder if SC knows that those cost savings he claims, were stolen from Medicare to the tune of 1/2 Tillion in cuts.


Less costly and efficient my askie...

Isn't he cute, he STILL thinks I support Obamacare... despite the FACT that I have stated COUNTLESS times the following:

I SUPPORT A SINGLE PAYOR SOCIALIZED HEALTHCARE SYSTEM.

Obamacare is NOT that. Not even close. Obamacare is modeled after your new hero, Mitt Romney's, plan implemented in Mass.

Forcing citizens to go to a private insurance company and purchase a policy fi they do not get a policy through there work or be criminally liable for fines and whatnot... IS NOT SOCIALIZED MEDICINE. Even implying that Obamacare is even remotely the equivalent to a SINGLE PAYOR SOCIALIZED HEALTHCARE SYSTEM is nothing but complete ignorance and the wingnuts continued assault on Obama based on lies and deception.

Like I said, we already have a socialized healthcare system in the U.S., it is just a really bad one that is rife with profiteering and bloated fees for services.

Just using simple math...

We currently spend $835 billion annually on medicare, which covers approximately half the population of the U.S. Currently Americans spend approximately $2 trillion annually on healthcare. By simply opening up medicare to 100% of the population, we would save $330 billion a year. That is without any reforms to the current system.

According to data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the United States spends two-and-a-half times more than the OECD average, and yet ranks with Turkey and Mexico as the only OECD countries without universal health coverage.

What does that mean? It means we are already paying for universal healthcare, we just aren't getting it. A true fiscal conservative should be OUTRAGED by the cost/benefit of our current healthcare system.

You make two valid conclusions, First, 50% of the current healthcare system is single payer, Second, it's all F-up...then you drive off a cliff with your conclusion.  You acknowledge, single payer exists, you conclude, rightly so, it's a mess, then you seek to solve the problem by suggesting we need more of the same.

You are a glutton for punishment.

You are a glutton for punishment.

Where did I say "the single payor portion of our healthcare system is a mess".

You simply can't read.

What I said is that we are paying TWO AND A HALF TIMES AS MUCH for our healthcare than countries that already have universal healthcare, yet we are not getting universal healthcare.

What I am saying is that Americans are paying enough to have universal healthcare AND pay for universal healthcare for Canada and Mexico... and still have money leftover.

What I am saying is that we are paying for a Mercedes and taking delivery of a Hyundai and not complaining.

What I am saying is that a true fiscal conservative would be OUTRAGED by the cost/benefit of our current healthcare system and if you look at who's pumping the dollars into defending it, it is insurance and pharmaceutical companies. You are being spoon fed bullshiite by the heaping tablespoon when you say things like "ours is the best healthcare system in the world" and "just look at how bad it is in Canada". It's NOT the best system in the world, it is just the most expensive... by a long shot and while Canadian healthcare certainly has its issues, you won't find people dying because they can't afford to see a doctor...

Go ask a French or German immigrant what they think of American healthcare. The answer will surprise you, I guarantee it.
